Thanks for the kind words. I'm pleased that you find the reviews useful. Thanks also to the members who have given me download suggestions.

I'm fully in favor of copyrights and intellectual property protections, but it's a shame that so many of these classics have become tied up in meaningless copyrights. Gems like "The Mask of Dimitrios" aren't available from any source - free or paid. They aren't broadcast or on DVD. For all intents and purposes they can be considered lost films. This situation is getting worse, not better, now that Netflix seems to be bailing on its commitment to making some vintage films available. More of them are dropped from their lineup every day.

So I'll continue to post wish lists for our excellent uploaders. Who knows? Maybe we'll get lucky once in a while.

Have you looked for this movie in binary newsgroups?

Good suggestion. Unfortunately I stopped subscribing to newsgroups some time ago. The problem was and is time - I don't have enough of it. Between work and other obligations my plate is much too full. Well, maybe someday...

Thanks again! Maybe I should re-think about re-subscribing to newsgroups.

Giganews is a good provider for binary newsgroups. Their retention is over 600 days.
